Vintage Black & Whites

I love black and white photos. Bonus when they are vintage! There is certainly a romantic mystery associated with them. They have such a timeless appeal that brings with it feelings of nostalgia in the stories they tell. Even for those of us who did not experience that particular time.

In our house, we have a few vintage black and white photos of our families, here and there.

Here is one with Stephane's grandfather. I tease him that that's where he got his sexy legs!

My mom and dad on their wedding day. I had these copied years ago and recently found them 
in an album. I love having them tucked in the mirror in my bedroom, 
where I do my makeup in the morning.

A photo of Stephane's grandmother with her guitar found a spot in our living room 
gallery wall. It think it's a neat shot.

I came across the tumbler site, Rides a Bike, the other day and it made me want to get an old bike and cruise around town. Or at least dream about it... or buy the coffee table book. Here are a few of the photos I particularly liked.

Tell me you don't feel a little bit of nostalgia for Old Hollywood? It's pretty awesome, if you ask me!


  1. I love vintage black & white photos so right about all the stories & memories that one photo tells

  2. I've recently really started to get into photography and taking my photos seriously. I used to think black and white was sort of boring, until I started taking my own I am tempted to never edit another colour photo again. There is something so special about black and white, and the focus on light it allows...and how you can really zero in on what's important and block out all of the other 'noise'. Your vintage photos are awesome - the swimsuit one is cute.

  3. Those are great. I have a few on our gallery wall that I love too.

  4. Love a good vintage photo - my grandma has albums of old photos and they're so fun to look through! Those old bicycle shots are so fun!


Love hearing from you! Thanks so much :)
